This Binational Lesbian Couple Could Be The First To Receive A Green Card
With the dismissal of DOMA, married same-sex couples will now be federally recognized in 13 states. Cathy and Catriona could be the first of many binational same-sex couples to receive a legal green card.
Cathy and Catriona may be the first same-sex married couple in the United States to receive a green card:
They have completed their interview at the Denver, Colorado U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service office, clearing all eligibility hurdles except for DOMA.
Parents of three children, Cathy and Catriona were running out of options last year when Cathy’s H-1B visa petition was denied (she is a citizen of Ireland).
The Doma Projects states:
Their case has not been denied, and The DOMA Project co-founder, their attorney, Lavi Soloway, says they may be the first couple to have their green card case approved the day the Supreme Court strikes down DOMA.
